Each year, fourth and fifth year students from LSU work with the Mid City Redevelopment Alliance (MCRA) and the East Baton Rouge Redevelopment Authority (EBRRA) to identify a project, client and site. This year, the LSU students are working with Southern University architecture students and our client is the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. The students are developing a program for a fresh produce market and café with a focus on workforce development. On Sunday, October 6, the students will host a community engagement event called Mid City Speaks which hopes to empower the citizens of Baton Rouge to share their thoughts, ideas and dreams for the places they live. At four locations (see map in the album), residents are encouraged to share their perspectives on particular issues related to this project. All of the input, along with some food and fun, will be shared with the community at Mid City Speaks at 1730 North Blvd and on the web at The designs will be displayed at Lettermans's Blueprint at White Light Night on November 22. But these events can't happen without your help! We are asking for donations that will contribute to the catering, activities, and whatever else is needed to make these events a huge success for our underlying cause; to help the residents in this area. Whether it's $5, $20 or $100, no amount is too small! We greatly appreciate any and every donation that comes our way. All donations will directly feed into MCRA's paypal account. Thanks so much!!
